Testing gas heaters in Canberra?

Dazzlar 17 June 2013 1

Now that Winter is upon us our gas heaters are in full use. I recently read an article about the death of two little boys due to Carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide poisoning and I was wondering who do I get to test my heaters?

They are the old wall heaters and are original to the home, making them about 30 years old. I have been told that they were banned in A.C.T. schools but don’t know if that is true or not.

I have had one of them repaired recently but the repairer advised that he wasn’t able to test them. Any ideas?

We had our gas heater serviced by Climatemaster (http://www.climatemaster.com.au/) two years ago. The service guy tested the CO levels and found them to be moderately high. We were recommended to upgrade the system (which we did). I am not sure if it was warranted, however we were wanting a more efficient system anyway. I guess as you have just had the heater repaired you do not want to get a service done – it is crazy that the person that repaired your unit could not test for it. Perhaps Climatemaster could arrange to have someone come over as a nominal fee?
